Looking for a craft cocktail bar with high-end spirits and house-made ingredients in Orange County? The hands-down Chowhound favorite is 320 Main Seal Beach. It's full of liquor nerds and artistes, and you can get stuff like tequila Sazeracs with absinthe sprays, wet martinis with Plymouth Gin and Dolin vermouth, and martinilike creations made with Earl Grey.
johnnypd's favorite: a Negroni's Loss, sweeter than a typical Negroni and a tad less bitter, due to Gran Classico taking the place of Campari. "Extra citrus oils balanced it out perfectly," says johnnypd. The bartenders make a mean Moscow Mule, too, says groover808.
Skip the $4 happy hour cocktails and go for the high-end stuff.
